I realize that July ended yesterday. But since I made these items while it was still July, I think I can go with the Christmas in July theme.
Both of these were made for challenges during the Fiskateers CHA-in-Spirit crop I co-hosted. I hadn't planned to play along as my hostessing duties took up a lot of time, but I was so inspired by the neat stuff flooding the gallery that I ended up completing all 24 challenges.
I made this card for the "Ho Ho Ho" challenge which asked us to get a jump on Christmas preparations by making something Christmasy. I had lots of fun playing with these SEI papers.
For the next challenge, we had to choose a cool project from the gallery and use it as inspiration for our own project. I chose a neat gift card holder made by Nic. I decided to give mine a Christmas theme, since I often give gift cards to cousins and nephews at Christmas and rush to make gift card holders at the last minute.
